What a wonderful place. In the middle of the jungle, with lots of wonderful ruins and lots of birds and animals around. The stucco “mascarones” (masks) are a must-see. Worth any especial trip to visit this place. and monuments.

A very quiet, remote and amazing place. It still has jungle surrounding it, but the ruins themselves are fascinating. Well worth getting a tour guide, as it means so much more that way. We used Native Choice and thought it was great.

Depends on age and their ability to enjoy the historic site. This is not a playground even though there is plenty of space. There are plenty of opportunities to get lost so you need to keep a close eye on them.
